you got it in one!!!!!!
but we have a caravan so she loves that, we also have a shetland 4 plus 2 for spending time on the river which she likes but does miss the comforts of a modern caravan

the rib will propbably be for transporting her to the beach area in chichester harbour so i can go off and have fun while she is sunbathing

she does enjoy it when the conditions are right!!!!

a smooth ride and not bouncing and slamming down

somewhere for the picnic basket
no cold winds
only sun no clouds
not too much noise
not going too fast so too windy
no rain
no smelly fish
soft baked bean hovis bread
heating if a bit too cold

that probably covers some of it!!!!!!get the idea?
the mrs just reviewed the list and she said she would be happy to go out on the rib under the above conditions for 20 mins or so if the kids werent around and would then like to get back to the beach!!

does anyone else have this problem too?

Bloody hell!

I had to sell my Microplus because it wasn't wild enough for my g/f... She loves the SR4-nice and easy to get airborne.
